I intend to mostly focus on the latest Star Wars movies but I'd kind of like to go over the others as well. I watched episodes 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 within the past week and only got saw highlights/synopsis of 1 and 2. I thought episode 3 was pretty good and gave an interesting look into the Palpatine and Annikin Skywalker/Vader. I'd have kind of like to see more of a backstory of Palpatine. Kind of like to know more about his relationship with Darth Plagueis. Maybe we need a prequel to the prequel? We sort of get a glimpse of him in episode 3 but I feel like episodes 4-6 kind of gloss over him and just have him there as a generic evil villain. Really enjoyed Vader's performance in all of the movies I saw though. I am interested in learning more about the lore and origins behind the Sith/Jedi. It strikes me as weird that there can only be two Sith at a time. Okay, going into the 7th film now. So it's marked for spoilers. Suggest you don't read unless you've watched the new film. Spoiler It's been so long since I saw the Star Wars prequels that I sort of forgot the story, but from the reviews I've seen online they didn't really live up to the original films. So I'm glad they were able to pull this off. Seeing the original characters back was really cool/nostalgic. Han Solo did a great job in this imo. I felt like Princess Leia was a bit lackluster though, but it's still cool they were able to bring back the original cast. I'm interested in this new villain, Kylo Ren. So he has mind reading powers I suppose? I thought tying him in as Han Solo's father /Leia's daughter was a good direction. Giving him an inferiority complex to Darth Vader was good too. I assume people were already comparing him to Vader anyway, thinking of how he'd compare as a villain, so it's nice that they incorporated it into the plot. I'm still wondering if they're going to eventually turn him over to the light. Eg. he realizes how evil he's been and turns on Snoke eventually killing him in a similar way that Vader did. I guess that seems more "Disney-ish" but I feel like at this point it'd be too predictable and cliche to take that route again, so I kind of like the fact that he killed his Hans from a storyline perspective. It was probably the saddest moment in the entire Star Wars series for me (Vader's death sort of came close but he was evil so it wasn't as bad). So, this new force girl Rey has mind control powers? I don't know what to think of that. Seems a bit over the top but I'm open to it. We still don't exactly know what this force is. I thought they handled her character pretty well overall. So, I want to know more about this Snoke guy. He's Palpatine 2.0. He's there via projector I guess? Is he even a fraction of the size that he projects himself to be? How did he get his powers? Does he have any relation to the any of the current cast? I hope they actually develop his character a little more. Call it a wild hunch, but that Darth Plagueis guy that Palpatine mentioned sort of seems like a good character to use for this. Palpatine mentioned something along the lines of "ironic, he could save others from death, but not himself", what if he somehow did find a way to save himself or fake his death or just barely survive, etc. It's funny, people were trying to redeem Kylo and Vader through family relations and with Vader Luke was successful to an extent. They kept thinking "no matter how bad they seem there's some good in them", but with Palpatine/Snoke they don't even consider the possibility of them being good. It's not mentioned, they're just "pure evil", or whatever it is you want to call it. I see the similarities to the old films but I think that's not a bad thing and it's nice that the writers are aware of it. I kind of want to see what Luke's role in all this is. I mean, okay, they found him. Now what? Exactly how powerful has he become? Is he going to take on a mentor role to Rey? Does he have any other part to play? He seems like a very central point of the movie for someone who isn't really around all that much. Overall I enjoyed the film and am already looking forward to the next movie.
